Security problem

Hi

I have a  client/server architecture with windows2000 server as server and windows2000 prfessional as clients.
The problem is with out turn on the server machine the clients can enter into the domain,
how can i prevent this?
Here the users cannot access other client machine but only the authentication is done and logging onto the domain.

ie; If the server is not turned on, we have to prevent the client users from logging to domain.

Is it possible?

If i correctly understood your question,

you ask how to disable domain password caching, so if domain server is not available user shouldnt be available to log into domain.

Take a look at :

Posted about XP - but they are similiar with win2k.

Default number of cached logons is 10 , you should set 0.
